American exceptionalism - it's not just a song
American exceptionalism - Over the past few generations it has not been politically correct to take note of this but it is still true. Americans are literally a breed apart. Whether arriving on foot or by boat, for the first 350 years the fearful and the weak did not set out for America, once here the foolhardy and the the lame did not survive. Only those who could work together and were very tough set out for the interior and only those who could work as a team survived. It is this cohesion that gave us the tradition of overthrowing tyrants and becoming the land of the free—it's not just a song—and the home of the brave.
